POST OP INSTRUCTIONS : ROOT CANAL

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL ?

See the source image

 

Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root

canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth. When one

undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the

tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed.

 

POST OP INSTRUCTIONS
